Hint - If you take the coke bottles out of your eyes, it becomes very entertaining!! I don't have that problem because I don't drink the stuff. Also don't let someone spoil it for you by cliping thier toe nails. OH PLEASE. He must live in a dirt hole.

Pretty entertaining travelogue here, with the main moral apparently being, no matter where you go, how much of a distant point you run off to, there will always be Coke just in case you want it! We go all around the world, stopping at such far flung places as Egypt, Japan and the Phillipines, and we briefly go over some of the main tourist attractions there. Funny how every cuisine around the world can blend well with Coke. Some of the coke scenes are pretty wild (like the scenes in India).

Watching this 50's Technicolor travelogue by Jam Handy (brought to you by "your good neighbor who bottles Coca-Cola"), I learned the following:
1) All the people of the world are happy and care-free;
2) European "pioneers" have settled many parts of the world, where they now spend their time laying on beaches;
3) The darker the people's skin, the more "primitive" the culture;
4) The world is a very boring place;
and 5) I needed to clip my toenails.
The terrible narration (how many times can you use the word "bespeaks"?) is corn-ball all the way, as we are escorted through the US and Europe (part 1), Asia, Africa and South America (part 2), Central America, Mexico, and back to the US (part 3). This being the 50's, China consists only of Hong Kong, and Russia is conveniently non-existent.
The film's thesis is that people everywhere have their own unique ways of living the "good life". I will live the "good life" by never watching this again.
Note: 1/2 star for stock footage possibilities, 1/2 star because it was free.
